The Popocatépetl Volcano records 84 exhalations in the last 24 hours

Through the monitoring systems of the Popocatépetl volcano, 84 exhalations were identified accompanied by water vapor, volcanic gases, and low ash content.

In a statement, the Morelos government said that additionally, 45 minutes of tremor and a volcano-tectonic earthquake occurred yesterday at 12:34 hours, with a magnitude of 2.2

From the first hours of the morning, he mentioned, the continuous emission of volcanic gases and sometimes light amounts of ash have been observed, which are dispersed preferentially to the northeast.

The National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) urged people not to approach the volcano and especially the crater, due to the danger of falling ballistic fragments, and in case of heavy rains, move away from the bottom of ravines due to the danger of mud and debris flows.

The Popocatépetl Volcanic Warning Traffic Light is in Yellow Phase 2.
